I'd never heard of the PlatyPod until today. But after watching YouTube videos from Scott Kelby, PhotoJoseph, and one other guy, I think I'm convinced. I may buy one.
I bet you'd like it Jim. It's a really nice, well built piece. One thing it's especially good for is getting low (like water level) shots. Here's mine with a Z50, 300PF, 2xTC mounted.

I used this same setup to take the shot of my dogs eye at the top of the previous page with the Z50, 600F4 & 2xTC. It's plenty sturdy. :)

In fairly good light ISO 5600 is not bad on the Z6.

I forgot to follow through with this question. I'm glad I came back to this thread today. I've got to check this out. Thank you for sharing.

Very nice, Terri!
I really enjoy the latitude the Z bodies offer regarding IQ at elevated ISO's. Add Topaz DeNoise to the mix & it goes up even another level. :)

When I initially picked up my Z50, I wanted to force some elevated ISO shots to see how it would do. This one surprised me. I need to try something similar with the Z6.

I drove from Urnäsch (holiday location) to Schwägalp Pass (cable car station for Säntis, highest peak in the Alpstein massive). There is a car charging station I wanted to use, as there aren't any in Urnäsch and it offered the opportunity to go for a scienic walk, 45min. After that walk, several photo stops and a coffee in the restaurant, I was ready to go back: Topped up to drive from Urnäsch to Grindelwald, on Saturday - we change holiday destination then.

2yr old Luca came with me. He wasn't that quick, as he had not slept before - in fact I first carried him in that thing you can see in the last post, last image. Still, he walked the last 30min, and charged chocolate + ice cream power @ the restaurant. He pressed the shutter for the selfies - credits to him. Brought my both new 14-30 and a mini tripod.
